On arrival a Sora Rail scampered cross the road and Yellow-headed Blackbirds demonstrated their extraordinary dexterity in the cat-tail marshes. There were plenty of duck about some with ducklings but most are starting their eclipse moult. We noted Cinnamon Teal, Green-winged Teal, Blue-winged Teal, Shoveler, Gadwall, Redhead, Lesser Scaup and of course Mallard. There was also a Black-necked Grebe amongst the wildfowl.
